I NEEED TO KNOW WHO IS PLANNING ON GOING TOMORROW, SATURDAY, February 27.

 

I am sending this to the entire team as you all are welcome to come skiing if you want to spend the day in Farmington.

 

We will leave from the High School at 9am!!!

I hope to be back no later than 4pm.

 

We will be skate skiing most of the day, but feel free to bring classic to cool down with if you want.

 

We will be doing the sprint races for our intervals, but you do not have to do those if you are coming out just to ski.

 

Please bring

Skate skis, poles and boots

Water bottle

Change of clothes

Lunch if you don’t want to purchase food there

Money for trail fee and snacks

 

We will have to figure out carpooling when we get to the school. Just let me know tonight who is going.

 

Parents I need to have a note saying it is ok to have students riding with other students or if they need to ride with me (I have room for 4)

 

Sorry for the last minute message

U16/EHSC Qualifier

Just a reminder that everyone racing in the U16/EHSC qualifier race on March 5 has to register themselves.
The School (or I) will not register anyone for this race.

Check the calendar for the practice schedule and be flexible with the type of training, we may be roller skiing, running or skiing on snow depending on weather.

Post States

Wow, the regular Nordic Ski season is over. :( That went very fast and was very challenging due to the "great" winter we are having.
I want to thank all of the Freeport/Brunswick Nordic team for their great accomplishes this winter and amazing results at the WMCC and States races. :)


The next step for all of you is to make sure you attend the Awards ceremony March 3 at 7pm. It will be shorter than past years as we will just be doing the awards and not staying for the individual team  part.
Instead we will have a year-end party where we will present varsity letters/certificates, State team medals and just enjoy the end of the season and maybe view some photos.
Details will be coming soon.


Also...
I updated the Feb and march calendars with a couple practices, so check them out if you want to keep "skiing". Anyone trying out for the EHSC and U16 teams have to be focused enough to keep going with your workouts till after those races are over.
I will be handing out roller skis on Wednesday so you can keep skiing during the week and hopefully snow skiing on the weekend.


All practices are optional, but highly recommended for EHSC and U16 skiers. Plus it will give you a head start for next year. :)
